Good day to all my Nikiski neighbors.
After a nice holiday break, area schools will resume today. Remember to watch for buses and little ones waiting in the chilly mornings.
Have you heard the phrase "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?" Starting today, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Nutrition Services will begin serving breakfast to the Nikiski North Star Elementary students before school. The cost for a full breakfast is $1.50, or $.30 for those with reduced lunch.
Those students receiving a free lunch will also receive a free breakfast.
I have been noticing more and more of those Nikiski Firefighter T-shirts being worn around town.
The shirts, available in three sizes, can be purchased at Nikiski Fire Station No. 1 to support the Nikiski Fire Fighter Association. The Nikiski Fire Department also has a snazzy informative Web site at http://www.borough.kenai.ak.us/NikiskiFire/webpages/home.htm.
Yolondia Rodland-Knodel is the care coordinator for the Nikiski Senior Center.
